Adios Oscar! Brazilian Play-Maker Is Off To China

Published on:

Chelsea have officially confirmed the sale of Oscar to Chinese Super League club Shanghai PSG.

The Brazilian midfielder arrived at the Stamford Bridge in 2012 and won Premier League, Europa League and a League Cup in his four years stint at the club.Fenerbahce

The Brazilian midfielder is set to receive a whooping £20 million-per-year at the Chinese club making him one of the highest earning players in the world.

Chelsea will receive a mammoth £60 million for the player, making it one of the best deals a Premier League club has got while selling a player.

“Oscar will arrive in Shanghai in the coming days and he will become a member of our team,” read a statement from Shanghai SIPG. “The play-maker, who is renowned for his attacking abilities, will help the club push for the title in the new season.”

After the news of a massive bid from China was revealed, Blues boss Antonio Conte had expressed his sadness at the players departure.

“I am sorry because he’s leaving as a really good player and a really good man,” the Italian remarked. “I must be honest about this but I also understand him and his decision.”Andre Villas Boas

The 25-year-old never really reached his potential at the London based club and failed to break into Chelsea’s first-team under Conte,

Oscar made 203 appearances for Chelsea and scored 38 goals in the process.

Oscar will now play under former Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas.
